I am attaching this photo from my office at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD. I have spent 30 years working as an engineer, and I am very excited to be standing in front of an image of the Parker Solar Probe Satellite. I led the electronics manufacturing team through the builds of the hardware for the satellite which will make the closest approach to the sun (of any man-made object) on Monday, November 5, 2018. The glories of science will be upon us soon :) My husband and I have been married for 26 years, and we have 2 grown children. We moved to Maryland in 2009.
I graduated from NDA in 1983, and I am proud to be an alumna. I still remember my days learning math, physics, French, English, Etymology, and religion at NDA. Please know that my NDA education has taken me far into a wonderful career, and I have lifelong friends, as well.
Wishing you all a happy day!
